From Burden To Rest (Love That Freed Us, #1) by Lawrence Waymire

“From Burden to Rest” is the first book in the "How Love Freed Us" series. It is a Christian Fiction novella that is mixed with elements of romance, action, and suspense telling the riveting story of three teenagers, James, Sara, and Ellen. These three live in a small unpopular Georgia town called Hentsville and end up going through an unexpected set of twists and turns. Two of them go to extreme lengths in their pursuit of true love, but start out looking in all the wrong places. Ironically, two of the three in the group are interested in another member of the group, but none of them share mutual interests. This quickly becomes a tangled tale of jealousy and envy.

Both James, the rugged handsome alpha male, and Ellen, a promiscuous untamed hooligan of sorts, are viewed as immoral villains, while the beautiful Sara Clines is considered a perfect saint in the eyes of the small town. However, after each of the three individually experience some major life-changing events, they all end up becoming what no one would have expected. From a sordid blend of lustful desire, bloodshed, deceit, gang violence, riches, and utter despair emerge both tragedy and the bright rays of light that can only come from hearts that have been changed by Jesus Christ. When all seems lost, two of these main characters independently discover a path that utterly frees them from the unbearable burdens in their lives. However, even though they didn't find true love yet, will true love find them?

This story will take you on a roller coaster ride of both tears and laughter. It will tug on your heart by reminding you of how depressing and void this life can be until the love and grace of Christ pierces through the darkness, bringing rest to the burdened soul.

I recommend this book. Being a short story it had to put the emphasis on certain area's. Which thought the writer did well on. It's main theme was not sex or drugs. It was what the meaning of life is about. It is something you find at the end of the story.

This is a decent Christian book. It is not written extremely well but the story is good enough to keep your attention. I would recommend it. Kathy weekly

I hate to leave a negative review on a free text but its got to be done. The premise in the intro to this very short story is more hopeful than the story itself. The main character is weakly introduced at the beginning and then after a 5 year gap, comes back as a completely different person who has lost his street smarts, his common sense, and the single moral value he previously held, for no apparent reason. All other characters, from love interest to potential protagonist, end up with very brief cameos in his highly narcissistic existence. Then, after deciding to kill himself, 5 minutes later he finds a Bible and his story is resolved in a paragraph. Perhaps we can't expect plot or character to be better developed in a 60 page novella, and we should be thankful. If it were longer, the reader would have given up long before the light of Christ appeared! The most painful, and most easily corrected problem, though, is the grammar, which starts badly and worsens to an atrocious ending. This piece desperately cries out for an editor. But if there had been an editor, they would surely have talked the author out of publishing it entirely.
